My 2017 travel wishlist

A very happy new year, everyone. I hope that 2017 will be a happy and health one for us all.

I have set myself the challenge of visiting 30 countries before my 30th birthday. With 14 months until the big 3-0 I need to visit six more countries to make this ambition a reality.

I have plans to either spend my next birthday or the last couple of weeks of my twenties in New Zealand, fulfilling a long-held dream since a certain trilogy that was filmed in NZ was released.

This means that I would still need to tick off five more countries.

Mountains have been calling to me recently so I quite fancy visiting European countries that I have not been to before, perhaps Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg, Switzerland, and Austria. The Swiss lakes look very appealing, as does Germany’s Black Forest.
